Got cucumbers? Here’s a cold summer soup…

I think one can eat only so many cucumber salads before starting to dream of other tastes. Here’s a lovely recipe, based on the Spanish summer soup Ajo Blanco, which is normally made without cucumbers and garnished with white-ish fruit such as grapes or melon. In this version, though, cucumber adds a refreshing tang – and ample vitamin A (as long as you don’t peel). Very quick to make, and you can whip it up the night before.
